This artwork features a piece of old tablecloth, recycled to become the background for this wee statement.
I have a fixation with power pylons, and regularly photograph them marching across the landscape when I am being driven or flown within view.
The colour applied with fabric paint represents the water in our rivers and springs that is harvested for irrigation, and sold to overseas interests to bottle and sell back to us!
The newspaper article behind the power pylon was actually a happy accident that occurred when I transferred the image.
The crosses stitched over the main text emphasise the ‘don’t waste’ message.
